Change bad habits…

Most of us think that bad habits are smoking, nail biting or eating unhealthily – we look at the physical actions. The ones that are hard to recognise are the ones that have been running in your life for a very long time.

Some examples are:

The right mindset…

Having the right mindset is of great importance if you want to realise your goals. You have to not only be able to see yourself as already having achieved your goal, but you have to be able to feel it and believe it.

The art of allowing…

What is the art of allowing?

When you feel negative emotions whether it’s anger, fear or frustration, that is a sign that you are in a place of not allowing or in a state of resistance. When you are feeling positive emotions such as happiness, enthusiasm and passion,…

Be comfortable with your ‘SELF’…

‘The worst loneliness is to not be comfortable with yourself’ – Mark Twain

A Reflection of YOU…

Perception is Projection

What does this mean? It means that your perception of people or situations around you is truly a projection of what is going on inside your mind.

This is why two people can witness the same thing, yet each…

How to Create a Memorable Elevator Pitch

Have you ever been in a situation where you meet a new person in an elevator, and they ask: “What do you do?”

You only have about a minute to describe what you do and the benefits. So, if you want to be memorable, then you need to be informative and creative. Easier said than…

The Most Important Love Affair You Will Ever Have…

‘I am my own biggest critic. Before anyone else has criticized me, I have already criticized myself. But for the rest of my life, I am going to be with me and I don’t want to spend my life with someone who is always critical. So I am going to stop being my own…

Guilt: As Charged…

Guilt is an inside job. It is as insidious as it is crafty and it is a creature of many disguises, showing up in many different forms.

I liken guilt to a ‘black tar, seeping down the back of your throat’ feeling. For some people, over time, this tar…

In the Pursuit of Perfection…

Let me allow you in a little to a side of my nature I don’t often speak about – I am a born perfectionist. Yes siree! I like being efficient, I get pleasure out of knowing I have tried my hardest to get the results. For example, when I am creating a new brochure, if the…

There is no such thing as FAILURE – only FEEDBACK!

As Thomas Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” If he’d given up after the first attempt we might still be in the dark!

Is keeping busy really only veiling the loneliness?
